wisdom of the night
According to certain Native American folklore, the Great Spirit that lives within the Great Mystery gathered all the animals on Mother Earth and said, “I must conceal the Realization, that humans create their own reality, until they are able to comprehend it.”
The Buffalo, most sacred of all animals, said, “I will bury it in the great plains.”
“No, humans will dig and find it there,” replied the Great Spirit.
The Whale, keeper of ancient knowledge, said, “I will carry it to the bottom of the ocean.”
“No, humans will go there one day and find it,” replied the Great Spirit.
The eagle, close to the heavens where the Great Spirit dwells, said, “I’ll fly it to the moon.”
“No, humans will soon go there too and find it,” replied the Great Spirit.
The Owl, essence of true wisdom, said, “”Put it inside them.”
“Yes,” replied the Great Spirit. “It is the last place they will look.”
